Great Plains president Doug Burgum.
GREAT PLAINS president Doug Burgum on the management ideals he learned from working in his company's family-owned grain elevator business: "When you've got a grain elevator, the people you serve are landowners, and they move the ownership of that land from father to son. My cousins are serving the grandsons of. the people my grandfather served. That was the only business example I grew up with. You served customers for a lifetime. There was no such thing as a quick buck." (Quoted in Inc. Magazine, 9/92)
